Do pilots and flight attendants work as part of the same flight crew every single flight, or do you work with different people every flight?

If you work with each other routinely, do you develop friendships and spend your free time together when you're in cities other than your home city? Do you work better because you're friends?

Christine’s Answer

Crews bid schedules every month and are awarded trips based on seniority. So if you're senior, you're more likely to be able to fly with people you know well. I mainly fly with different people every trip. I'm always meeting someone new. In general, crews are amazing people so you get along very easily with each other. Most of the time, some or all of the crew will go out to dinner together. Yet sometimes there are trips where everyone wants to do their own things.

Robert’s Answer

Pilots and Flight Attendants are scheduled seperately. Typically the pilots stay together for the length of their trip and sometimes do things together on layovers. But that is totally dependant on the individuals. We usually don't see the same flight attendants for more than 1 or maybe 2 flights during a trip although the international crews do stay together more often since they are usually going to one foreign destination then returning home together.
